LONG-FEATURE FILMS
MAKE IT NEW JOHN


Country: United Kingdom
Year: 2009
Duration: 55'
Direction: Duncan Campbell
Editor: Duncan Campbell

Spanish premiere

This film could be the unofficial counterpart of Back to the Future. The underside of the futuristic car driven by Michael J. Fox in the 1985 film. It could also be the apocryphal story of the crisis of modern capitalism. Born the son of an immigrant Romanian foundry worker, John DeLorean’s natural talent for engineering placed him at the top of General Motors. He persuaded the British Government to back a venture, building a factory in Belfast to produce a new sports car. DeLorean’s attempts to keep the factory open became increasingly desperate and corrupt and he was eventually arrested by the FBI. The factory, which employed 2,000 workers, closed a few years later, having produced just over 9,000 cars. Duncan Campbell’s film fuses original footage from the 1980s with 16mm re-enactments and documentary-style interviews to produce a masterful exploration of work alienation, economic crisis, and documentary approaches.
